According to a 2022 study by Parks Associates, 43% of multi-dwelling units are home to at least one smart home device. “The most significant benefit of installing smart home devices in MDUs is rental rate increases. Other benefits include reduced complaints from current residents and a boost in attracting new ones, along with many others,” it says.
The study goes on to predict a growing use of smart devices in the future, stating “more than 80% of property managers intend to install internet-connected devices in the next 12 months.”
